Mozilla - feels home!

Perseverence takes you a long way, and you'd come out a winner in the end if you persevere. If I sound father-like (or mother-like, for those whose fathers are too busy to give homilies) , I have ample reasons.

For some reasons, I wasn't ablt to configure Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0. I gave the same entries as my Netscape client but it didn't work. I tried numerous other combinations, but it still didn't work. Having been in the IT industry, I've gotten used to these weird things, and pretty much know that I was helpless. So I just downloaded and installed the latest version 1.0.2 and it works like a breeze. I use the Mozilla Firefox web browser, and Mozilla Thunderbird both as an e-mail client and a news/blog reader. These are amaaazingly fast, and have a sweet and very pleasant interface, and heck, provides tabbed browsing. So, good bye to Netscape and Feedreader.

I'm so impressed... its feels like home.
